Meet our March Member of the Month

Meet Dave Ruegg, one of Core Club's Personal Trainers.

He graduated from Eastern Connecticut State University in 2009 with a degree in exercise science/kinesiology and a focus in coaching and health. This past year he decided to pursue a graduate program in physical therapy and corrective exercise and it was during that time he started his work here at Core Club. 

Dave says, "Working here has been a perfect fit for me. This gym has it all: free weights, a variety of cardio, advanced equipment, privacy and a great staff. Not to mention the performance center we just added downstairs really has added a whole new exciting element to our facility. I strive to push our clients and members to their fullest potential and support them in reaching their goals. If you are interested in a free consultation with me, lets chat!"

TRX and Youth

TRX is a great sport training approach for youth fitness and an overall functional tool for youth. It is important to understand that when training young athletes, the goal is not to lose weight or gain strength, but more so to focus on working toward enhancing their skills while they are young. With TRX, your strength, speed, flexibility and cardiorespiratory will naturally increase overtime.

Maddie, one of our 8 year old members is showing us her TRX 'Pike' during her first TRX session! Way to go!
